Re: SW Florida Eagle Cam 2018~2019

What joy to check in today after a long absence and find the great news of E12’s arrival and a possible (probable?) pip in egg #2. This is a special day indeed! :rh:

Re: SW Florida Eagle Cam - 2017/18

Journi, your comparison scaps of the nest tree area in Sept. 2017 and Sept. 2018 are interesting. The Cam #2 tree seems to have lost a tremendous amount of foliage in the one year interval. Yet another home pasture snag tree in the making?

Re: SW Florida Eagle Cam - 2017/18

:)
Thanks Sunnybird and, yes, that was I. I’m just trying to get Vicki’s permission to use scaps from her videos for my little project. A large share of H&M’s nest renovations take place before the SWFEC cams come online, and Vicki’s videos are such a great source of scaps to record their progress.

Re: SW Florida Eagle Cam - 2017/18

It’s wonderful to see you, Pascale!

This throwback scap, captured in March, resonated with me at the time and seems to speak so clearly to E10’s current situation. The comfort of home spread out beneath him, the horizon beckons: come to me now.
